Can you describe the issues you faced? Is it coverage? Noise fidelity?
In general, the best results come from using external mics, so I'm curious to understand what the issues you saw were.

I'm assuming you already tried the ASK-4 #300 connected directly to a good camera running at 30 FPS?
We would all assume that the patients are aware of the recordings. In a lot of states, it is the law. If the therapist is recording as opposed to taking notes, frankly, I would use two different solutions. A video solution, which are plentiful, and an audio solution (Louroe for example, and there are a few good ones). If the therapist is looking to record the session for his/her legal or physical protection, I would still use that solution, but signage and informing the patients are an absolute must.
I agree, I have used the Louroe mics before, they are great. I have used them in interview rooms for police departments, i have used them at a CPS visitation room which was ~25X40 mounted in the middle of the room. Those are your best bet. Tie them into the camera directly which helps the audio and video line up right.

I have had good luck with:
I have rooms with 6 microphones, 4 microphones, 2 microphones where each room has a mixer in it. This is for recording classroom settings where questions in the class are just as important as the instructor. I haven't used their IP interface but I'm sure it works just as well. The president is very helpful and I have liked using their products versus ones from:
I like the low profile of the ETS mics and the fact they seem to offer DSP products to remove background noise which I have used in the classrooms above with good results.
